I have the ricochet plate anodized in black...I love it! Full coverage, beefy mounting hardware, and $10 to have it anodized in any color you want. You can't go wrong...I will snap a couple of pics if you want to see the fitment.

I built my own, you can see the extra protection that is offered over a glide plate only. I cut it for the glide and added side protection.

thanks for the input everyone, Im going to get the ricochet offroad plate.

Mattedhead, would you be able to snap those picks? I havent seen one in black but im going to look into it. I always order from rockymountainatv and I think they just have the silver one.

Thanks again.

Ricochet Offroad Plate...They offer a sturdy aluminum construction and the best undercarriage protection for your bike...Armour looking dude!

I put a carbon one on my blue bike. It got pretty hammered on the Utah trip. I wouldn't recommend it if you ride in really rocky stuff.

Carbon fiber is a poor choice if you really need a skid plate. Won't take many log or root hits either before breaking.

While I don't have a YZ, I did put a flatland on my WR, and it has taken a number of serious hits in the rock garden where I ride. I can attest to their durability and protection. I hit one rock hard enough to almost stop the bike, which is quite a bit heavier than yours. If it will take that, it will take a lot.
